    – What is your relationship to science fiction? -> I love it when it’s good.

    – Do you read it? Watch it? What/who do you like and why? -> I prefer to watch it than read it as I feel visually it can be brilliant when done well, though I know I’m in a minority, many of my friends love reading Science fiction novels.

    – What do you see as science fiction’s role in promoting biotechnology and life sciences? -> I don’t think it’s at the forefront of Scientific speculation, however it is necessary for a sceince fiction piece of work to be sceintifically up to date. Thus it can be a postive thing for making science accessible.

    – Do you use science fiction to talk about your work? -> I like to write, so science fiction would influence much of my work.

    – Are there any specific science or science fiction movies or books that you would recommend? -> Although I don’t know if it counts, the film Vanilla Sky involves many Science Fiction elements to it’s plot, it’s adapted from the film ‘Abre Los Ojos’ but I think I prefer the Tom Cruise version because it’s a bit easier to understand.
